Tyler, TX (KETK) — Yesterday, I did a POV on Texas Senator Ted Cruz ruffling feathers in our nation's capitol.
Cruz is a darling of the Tea Party. He's gone to D.C. saying the same things he was elected for, but the intelligencia is having hard time with Texas Ted because he wont shut up and go along to get along.
I've mentioned many times that politicians in D.C. and the so-called journalists, or now-a-days stenographers, are living on a different planet.
Last week, one government report said, if we don't stop the spending train we are on and cut back, we are headed to a black hole. Has this been mentioned by anyone except Fox News...no?
If you will remember the last time a Republican was sworn in for his second term, the media attacked George W. Bush and his wife for having lavish parties while so many were hurting from a 5.4% unemployment rate and we were at war.
What are we hearing now about how expensive everything was? Crickets, nothing?
We need people on capitol hill to shake things up. Political pundit Steve Roberts just last week said the reason why things were so rancorous on the hill is not enough politicians live their full-time anymore.
Mr Roberts point is they just see the other side as the enemy. They don't see each other at shopping malls and ball games,
and see the other side as human. But the founding fathers never set up for our elected officials to be full-time fat-cats.They were supposed to stay near the people and represent the people when they went to D.C.
This is your problem. The old-timers on the left and right want a good time. Don't rock the boat.
We're $16 trillion in debt. The boat has a hole in it. People like ted Cruz want to fix it.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
